And now onto our week...
Nothing really spectacular about this week, but that is a good thing. We had some bumps, a few successes, but mostly it was just a regular week and blissfully uneventful!
Little Hands to Heaven: Unit 29
Grace learned about the letter X this week. Her older sisters both have a class on Wednesdays and she has really enjoyed the time we get to spend together one-on-one. It is also nice to have this time in case things don't go as planned earlier in the week.
Little Hearts for His Glory: Unit 11
Preparing Hearts for His Glory: Unit 7
Rose is checking out our beautiful map of the United States for math...that's right! Math! I cannot emphasize how much we adore Life of Fred. I'm so glad I borrowed the first book from a friend to see what we thought. If you lean towards a Charlotte Mason style of schooling you should really check this out. I use it alongside our traditional math curriculum. I love how it takes math and crosses it into other subjects like geography, science, and history.
Grammar is going well...extremely well actually. I remember groaning with my classmates in grade-school whenever my teachers pulled out the grammar book. I didn't really feel that way inside, but you know, peer pressure and all that jazz. Rose seems to like the logic and order grammar provides. I have also seen a bit more order and structure to her writing aside from grammar. She is providing beautiful written narrations each week (scheduled in Preparing Hearts for His Glory) and wonderful 3-paragraph non-fiction pieces (another Scholastic resource).
So how was your week?
I'd love to hear about your ups, downs, and in-betweens!
